Why isn’t the cost for the medical and dental insurances used when figuring child support? I have never had anyone even mention or recognize the fact that I pay all the premiums for myself and my two boys and also pay half for any other co-pays, medical bills, etc.

Please don’t misunderstand me, I positively don’t mind paying for anything that my boys need but, I just think that maybe someone could recognize the fact that these are real $costs$ and shouldn’t be ignored.

It seems that these are never really figured into any calculations we as Fathers are to abide by.

Why are these $$costs$$ never looked at when setting C.S. guidelines?

I love my boys more than life itself and would never do anything to reduce their health/dental coverages.

This is just a question that was born during the “Open Enrollment” insurance month.

Thanks for the time
